distance of actually being president of the united states and there's something kind of breathtaking about that. if steve is right and if, you know, obama care, the kind of seat of obama care is his legacy, what's doubly interesting there is how accidental the birth of the kind of proto obama care, romney care in massachusetts was. what happened there was a buddy of his tom, the founder of staples, you know, kind of casually mentioned to mitt when he was coming in as governor that, you know, some doctors over at mass general were having trouble dealing with their uninsured and there wasn't any kind of internal, you know, deep ideological commitment to making this happen. >> very much sort of the accidental tourist. >> totally. >> in terms of politics. we have to go. the other thing we didn't talk about, jonathan, mitt romney sort of an ac crow nistic 1950s character in an america proven to be a very very different place than the 1950sing and '60s, a browner, more female, younger and more fired up. >> and a little more progressive. the problem mitt romney had, he brought confidence or

about the president here in the united states and his leadership on the issue and his presence in the region. in his own party, there are rumblings he should intervene more directly to help the fodder in syria, speaking of president obama, placing patriot missiles around the region to take down president bashar al asad's air power as soon as the current missile barrages can be contained. through mr. obama's critics the root of the absence of american leverage in the middle east today is a light footprint that was simply too light. is that shared? you're on the ground. is there a sense that the americans have been not present enough in all of this? >> absolutely. and it's not only that they have been absent, also when they have been present, they haven't been present substantially in the way people in the region would like them to be. president obama came to cairo after he was elected, delivered a positive speech, very much welcomed in this part of the world to re-set relations between the u.s. and the muslim world and the arab world. one of the things that he said that the united stat

in a state of reassessment. interrupting that was the ghost of christmas past, mitt 47% romney who on a conference call with donors attributed his loss to gifts bestowed by president obama. >> what the president -- president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base toolgs, give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government, and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> despite the fact that they supported his positions throughout the entire campaign, a frightened herd of republicans trampled over each other in a stampede away from romney's remarks. intent on selling a friendlier more compassionate gop, they included bobby jindal who was best known for totally blowing the republican response to the 2009 state of the union. >> good evening and happy mardi gras. i'm bobby jindal, governor of la louisiana. >> jindal has been the lead voice in the romney dissing, self-critical ameliorated gop. >> i absolutely reject that notion that description. i think that's absolutely wrong. >> this is completely not helpful. this is not where the republican nee

care. this is a concept mitt romney put in place as a state. obama would never have gotten this concept if romney didn't do it. in addition, what he's he saying is that obama won because he passed policies that people liked. and you know that's what politics is, sorry. it's just the basic -- basis of politic. romney knows this because he made suggestions that were, quote/unquote, gifts to voters during the campaign. he wanted to restore $716 billion of medicare savings. that was a gift in his concept to older voters. he wanted to restore nasa's brilliance, a gift to florida's voters. eliminate the estate tax and lower tax rates. people can say that's giving taxpayers money back. these are incentives to join your campaign, support your candidacy. if they doesn't understand that he has a weird conception of what politics is about. >> eric, he's factually incorrect of who is getting these programs. health and human services says 44.6% of those without health insurance are white voters who by the way mitt romney, you know, he lost among them, too. he won a great share of the white v
